Ive emailed these to my OT and am waiting to hear back but thought I see if any of you wise mnetters had any thoughts.... my son can sit unaided for a long time although is not crawling or walking.

We get alot of invites round to friends houses for dinner and stuff ( esp now I have friends taking pity on me for becoming recently single) it would be nice to have a seat I can take with me so that my ds can sit with us. I would like a sit that I can strap onto a normal chair if I can find one that will give enough support.

I realise the tumblefrom corner doesnt fit onto a chair but might still be worth considering having as a mobile seat.

Maybe someone has a better suggestion?? I hope these links work!!

TIA grin

What about a seat2go? They are on sale on activate, which don't have a website but can get the e-mail if you want?

That's a picture, you can get a head rest and a pommel that go on it too.

For absolute portability (it lives in the change bag "just in case") we have a totseat. The web site talks about it as if it is a baby seat only, but apparently it's fairly common for older SN kids. DD1 is age 4 1/2 and still fits in it. I may stick a bit of extra fabric in it as she gets older, so it goes higher up on her. Or make a bigger copy.

You can "boost" it up to the table by using a cushion underneath: to stop it slipping, move it back so the cushion is 2/3 under the child and 1/3 behind them iyswim.
